June 13, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 13, 1928

* Lou Gehrig has 2 HR & 2 Triples
* New York Yankees - Babe Ruth
* Major League baseball - MLB

The sport's section (page 21) has a four column headline: "Gehrig Hits Two, Ruth One, as Yanks Win" with subheads that include: "Gehrig Hits 2 Homers, Ruth One as Champions' Artillery Silence Chicago" "2 Triples For Gehrig Also" and more. (see) First report coverage on Lou Gehrig collecting 14 total bases while hitting 2 home runs and 2 triples in one game. Great to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
